The Australian Grand Prix starts this Thursday (March 24th) and as reported here has Ashley Hart (sister of Jessica Hart) as brand ambassador of the event for 2011.Â Today Ashley was front and centre at the media call at the Melbourne Town Hall arriving in a Formula One two-seater race car.
But most exciting is the news Upper Eastsiders is Gossip Girl heart-throb Ed Westwick is flying into Australia this week to attend the 2011 Formula 1â„¢ Qantas Australian Grand Prix.
Westwick is thrilled to be attending the four day event, saying “I\’ve heard so much about the Grand Prix in Melbourne and I can\’t wait to be part of all the action!”
“I love coming to Australia â€“ last time I was in Melbourne I had a ball. I have family here and love getting the chance to spend time with them,” he said.
While in Melbourne, Westwick will attend the exclusive “GP@28â€Ÿ party on Thursday, 24 March at Crown Metropol as the guest of Australian Grand Prix ambassador Ashley Hart – how lucky is Ashley?
Lots of mischief making this weekend in Melbourne I’m sure!
